Fed up with trying to memorise detailed instructions on how to work your iPad? Would you rather have a guide that empowers you to discover new things to do – for yourself?

The Explorers’ Guides are a new kind of technology book. Written to be entertaining and informative, each guide is structured around basic human needs.

Part 1 (this Kindle book) is 36,000 words long and contains 56 pictures. It explains how to use your iPad:

  • to make it fun to keep active and healthy (Chapter 1);
  • to play games you will enjoy, on your own, or with friends and family over the internet (Chapter 2);
  • to help someone who has problems with everyday living (Chapter 3).

Part 2, to be published later in 2016 will include chapters on: watching TV on your iPad, keeping in touch with friends and family, and creating photos and art on the iPad.

To make this new kind of technology book work for you there are:

  • general purpose How-to-do-it Guides for each topic considered that will not go out of date with new versions of apps for the iPad;
  • a Glossary of Touchscreen Buttons that you may encounter while exploring;
  • an Appendix – Getting apps and connecting to the internet, and
  • sign-posted explanations of useful jargon but no unnecessary jargon.

Apps featured include: Fitbit, My Fitness Pal, Angry Birds, Candy Crush, Accessibility Settings.
